to watch your language. [ laughter ] >> huge contrast to president obama. in so many different ways and often people look for the next president as an anecdote. he will be chairman of the republican governor's association. he will travel to all the critical states. his campaign manager is moving to new hampshire. so he is putting the pieces in place. if he could navigate around the extremist in his own party he should get a medal for courage. at least. >> he thrown out all the signals this will go beyond new jersey. doing the sunday talk shows. she talking about washington, d.c. in his future. it is really early. giuliani was out ahead but disappeared but he shown he is adept at seeing what makes him popular and sticking to it. after the hurricane his popularity rose but rather than having dissipate he held on tait. -- to it. he is more politically savvy and might hang on to the numbers. republicans will get behind him because they want to win and he could win because he is a main stream candidate and he has charisma. charisma wins elections. >> he is down to earth. >> very down to

before congress voted to pass the affordable care act in 2010, president obama told americans who wanted to keep their health insurance, yes, you can. and the following 3 1/2 years, mr. obama and administration officials repeated this promise. so many times that the white house website, white house.gov now has 102,000 matches for the words, quote, you can keep your insurance, unquote. this week, president obama went to boston on the same day health and human services secretary appeared on capitol hill. the obama mission, a 9/11 emergency rescue of obama care after its disastrous october rollout. the tactic, defend and attack. broke out concerning 10 million americans who have health coverage under individual or small group plans. they are getting notice from insurance companies that obama care regulations mean that when it comes to keeping their current plans, no, they can't. white house spokesman is already elastsizing, adding a triple x sized caveat. the canceled plans were substandard and the new mandatory often costlier plans will be better. once the exchange website works, that is.

. issue two, obama's fumble. >> we fumbled the rollout on this healthcare law. a whole bunch of things that are working really well, which people didn't notice. because they weren't controversial. i am very frustrated, but i'm also somebody who, if i fumbled the ball, i'm going to wait until i get the next plane and i'm going to run as hard as i can and do right by the team. so, ultimately i'm the head of this team. we did fumble the ball on it and what i'm going to do is make sure that we get it fixed. >> question, can president obama regain the ball? mort. >> we have a tradition in america of people apologizing for their mistakes. but i would have to say that this administration kind of is abusing that particular process. they made a lot of mistakes. they try and say i'm sorry. a lot of people are sorry they voted for him, as i said before. i think he's in deep trouble on this thing. i don't think he will escape the problem. i don't think he gets out of it for a long time. this program affected millions and millions of people. they misjudged not only the website, but how this progr

. okay. all in the family. >> barack is not the only obama to promise you can keep your insurance. first lady, michelle obama, was secretary at her side, made the same claim to leaders of women's groups at the white house, quote, if you already have insurance and it seems there are a lot of people who are worried that they will lose what they have under this plan, but under this plan, if you already have insurance, you are set. nothing changes. you keep your insurance. you keep your doctors, unquote. >> question, how could the white house staff from the chief of staff to the junior speech writers let the president and first lady put their credibility on the line with these false claims? >> . >> you got your doctor, you got your plan, you are not involved. help people who need it and most of doesn't tri said okay, we'll go along with that. >> it's true for 95% of people. and 95% -- >> the 5% are millions of people. >> and they will get a better deal. >> according to eleanor. >> according to eleanor and chris and the affordable care act. >> let's try this. okay, promises promises.
